    Bah humbug, someone has bought in cakes, biscuits, doughnuts etc for their birthday, I'd really like something but don't know how to syn it!

    Branded things are fine (they've bought caramel mini rolls - 6 1/2 syns - I'm not having that, its too many syns for something that size). Doughnuts are obviously gonna be bad so not having them, same goes for cream cakes - and I dont like cream anyway.

    But am sorely tempted by an Oatmeal and raisin cookie - but they arent on Syns online. Its one of the big ones from the Sainsburys in store bakery. I've searched under "cookies" - comes up with about 20 results of other types, but its not obvious whether they are from the bakery section or the biscuit aisle. Nothing at all for oatmeal and raisin, but other cookies on the list range from 4 syns to 24 1/2!!!

    No ingredients so you cant work it out on the syns calcualtor - and even if it was fairly high I dont need all of it - my workmate does SW too and we'd happily share one - if only we knew the damage!

    Think I'll just play it safe and have an alpen light instead.

    If you go online the nutritional info is on their websites so you can use the syn calculator x

    Had a look on Sainsbury's website and I couldnt find the nutrional info (i just looked up the product on the shopping part, had some details, eg suitable for vegetarians, details on packaging etc, but no nutrional info)

    Not to worry - the cookies are all gone now anyway

    Doughnuts are about 12 depending on where they are from. A lot but still within your daily limit - go on....be a devil

    asda defiantly have the info, they will probably be similar so you could use the calculator for the asda products and count them as the same

    Just tried ASDA website, no info on theirs either. It seems that if its a normal packaged item, then the info is there - its the same info that you could read off the label anyway. The Sainsbury's website was the same. But if there's no info on the label, then there's no info on the website either. This is what's on then entry from the ASDA website.

    Not to worry, the cookies went hours ago and the doughnuts will be stale by now. I've had 2 satsumas, an apple and the last bit of a fibre plus bar I started the other day and I'll be leaving work soon so the temptation will no longer be there
